Also -- Gave fastboot a try on Galaxy Nexus and while I didn't get any errors spit back at me, it failed to find any devices attached to it, unlike the Nexus 7 which found anything I plugged into it. It is running v2.54 of paranoid android with the latest glados kernel (which is pretty old but I like it). Later I might try swapping through a few kernels, but unlikely any time soon (it can't take/make calls while flashing).

Now this whole thing has me thinking, could we just strip clean a copy of Ubuntu for ARM (ya know, the one they are building specifically for the Nexus 7 might work) and toss that stuff into android? I mean, after all, the most useful things there are going to be command line tools that android is missing. I don't know what kind of dependency issues might arise.

I dont have a transformer, but do have the Nexus 7 with ubuntu, and yes I use fastboot and adb from it. Works wonderfully. I can repair friends devices without a pc when out and about. Also yes, you can remove the .bin from the file name.

Haha this is pretty slick. Discovered I could use my mini-USB charging cable with my OTG adapter to get my N7 and GN talking. The OTG end seems to be the dominant one though (ie. terminal side + where power flows from). It'll be great to not need my laptop if anything ever goes wrong on the road.

Any newer compile of fastboot we could upgrade to by any chance?

No idea if there's any changes to the actual source, but I guess I can try to create another build tomorrow.

Quick update: I just cant get it building for arm.

Very frustrating, but I can't bother spending my whole day on this. On the flip side, here is the changelog from google:

https://android.googlesource.com/pla....1_r1/fastboot

Not a whole lot of changes really.

I only used fastboot commands. It worked. I don't know whether adb is working or not. But i'm sure it won't work in fastboot mode.
